Take a pair of pliers and squeez the pressure fittings there should be two prongs sticking out press those together with the pliers, you may need a flat head screw driver to push the compression clap off after you squeez the two prong together try wigglying and pulling it at the same time.

How To Drain Fuel Tank On 2005 Jeep Liberty Gas Tank

here is the Cherokee page.
read chapter, 14, page 19 on..
shows all way there, and is not easy.
why do this.
is pressure low
pump dead
is there 12vdc to pump cranking, (no? then dont do this)

i have the KJ pages here. (line # messed up)
Two different procedures may be used to drain fuel
tank: through the fuel fill fitting on tank, or using a
scan tool.
The quickest draining procedure involves removing
the rubber fuel fill hose (7) (Fig. 25) from fuel tank
As an alternative procedure, the electric fuel pump
may be activated allowing tank to be drained at fuel
rail connection. Refer to DRB scan tool for fuel pump
activation procedures. Before disconnecting fuel line
at fuel rail, release fuel pressure. Refer to the Fuel
System Pressure Release Procedure for procedures.
Attach end of special test hose tool number 6541,
6539, 6631 or 6923 at fuel rail disconnection (tool
number will depend on model and/or engine application).
Position opposite end of this hose tool to an
approved gasoline draining station. Activate fuel
pump and drain tank until empty.
If electric fuel pump is not operating, fuel must be
drained through fuel fill fitting at tank. Refer to following
(1) Release fuel system pressure.
(2) Raise vehicle.
(3) If equipped, remove fuel tank skid plate.
(4) Thoroughly clean area around fuel fill fitting
(6) (Fig. 26) and rubber fuel fill hose (1) at side of
fuel tank. After cleaning, loosen fuel fill hose clamp
(2) at tank.
(5) Before removing rubber hose (1) (Fig. 26) from
fitting, note hose orientation while referring to marks
(3) and (4).
6) Disconnect rubber fuel fill hose at fuel tank fitting
(2) (Fig. 27). Using an approved gas holding
tank, drain fuel tank through this fitting.
Tank Removal
(1) If equipped, remove fuel tank skid plate and
tow hooks. Certain equipment packages will also
require removal of the trailer hitch. Refer to Tow
Hooks, Trailer Hitch or Skid Plate in 23, Body for
removal/installation procedures.
(2) Disconnect and separate fresh air tube (6) (Fig.
28) quick-connect fitting.
(3) Disconnect air tubes at front of NVLD pump
(9) (Fig. 28).
(4) Disconnect NVLD pump (9) (Fig. 28) electrical
(5) Disconnect fuel pump module electrical connector
jumper. This is located near front of fuel tank.
(6) Support tank with a hydraulic jack.
(7) Remove 4 fuel tank strap bolts (10) (Fig. 28) (2
at front of tank; 2 at rear of tank), and remove both
tank support straps.
(8) Carefully lower tank a few inches.
(9) Continue lowering tank while guiding remaining
hoses and lines through plastic isolator sleeve (3)
(Fig. 29).
(10) If fuel tank is to be replaced, remove NVLD
pump and fuel pump module from tank. Refer to
Fuel Pump Module Removal/Installation procedures.

How do I syphon the gas from a 1999 plymouth grand voyager?

Forget trying to syphon via the filler cap as most now have anti-syphon built in. Try breaking into the fuel line before it enters the engine and let the fuel pump do the work. On my old car (a 2002 Fiat) the line was just a push-fit connection. I disconnected and fitted a hose over the line to a container. I turned on the ignition and the pump switched on and started filling the container. It did, however, need switching on and off a few times because I believe there is some kind of pressure switch within the system and the pump stopped once it realised the pressure to the fuel injection system was not building up.

Evap system

The FSM is clear on this. each hose and fitting must be air tight.
or the the car vents gas fumes full time, and the EVAP ECU tests
(monitor) make sure this all works.
you can just look at the left and right side above rear tires. and see
if your hands are small enough to fit here. Id bet not.
some mech, report, the tank can be tilted down at front (drained fuel)
and gain access.
keep in mind, you get fuel siphoning at any time. do not open the system, with fuel in the tank, and then drive to autozone,
i loosen the gas cap so that pressure can not build in tank.
expanding fuel can push fuel out , during a filter change. very
dangerous in a garage, and you gone.
it's just a vent hose, you can see, it and what needs to be done is really obvious. given you arms sides and lenght.
my fsm states, " TANK pull"

Removal & Installation

  1. Relieve the fuel system pressure and disconnect the negative battery cable.

How to change fuel pump?

safely raise and support the back of the vehicle. The fuel pump will be on the passenger side of the fuel tank.

remove the fuel lines from the pump. Be careful as any residual pressure in the lines will spray out and get you. Wrap a rag around the connector before you remove it to reduce the spray.

Unbolt the passenger side fuel tank strap. You will need to do this to remove the wiring harness to the pump.

Remove the 6 bolts holding the pump to the fuel tank. An 8mm socket should work. If the tank is full gas will start coming out at this point. Have a drain pan ready to catch it.

Pull the pump out of the tank. This can be a bit of a rubix cube but the pump will come out without having to pull or drop the tank.

Please be careful! anytime there is fuel vapor or spilt fuel there is the chance for fire.

Use new clips in the fuel line fittings. There should be one black clip and one white clip. They only go into the fitting with the tab facing the line. If you put them in backwards the lines will pull off.

Sometimes they use a quick connect fitting that a release tool needs to be used to get the fittings off of the fuel pump. They can be purchased at any good auto parts store. There are two sizes and most parts stores will carry the tool that has both sizes in one tool.

Make sure you replace the fuel filter when replacing the pump.

How does one replace the fuel filter on a 1998 Buick century? What degree of difficulty is it for a non mechanic ( but has some experience w/ basic car maintenance)?

The fuel filter is under car by gas tank. Use ramps or jack up car and support it good.
Loosen gas cap to relieve any pressure in system.
Twist the connector 1/4 turn in either direction to loosen any debris. Squeeze the plastic tabs on the end of the connector and pull the connector apart. Repeat for the other connector.(some models might have a screw in connector on one side) you will need a couple of wrenches.
Remove filter mounting bolt, unhook the tab from the receptacle in the frame and remove filter. Installation is just reverse.
snap the connector back on and pull to make sure it connected. You will need a drip pan to catch the fuel when you dsconnect the lines and what's in the filter.

How do i replace the fuel filter on a 2000 Nissan Sentra

Fuel filter for SRDE20B15 engines (00-01) are in the tank mounted on top of the fuel pump inside the fuel assembly. Release fuel pressure by starting car and removing the fuel pump fuse, open fuel filler cap, remove rear seat, open fuel assembly cover by turning the screws clockwise, remove harness, remove fuel line quick connector carefully (if pressure was not relieved, gas will leak, make sure to release pressure completely), take out fuel assembly (watch out for fuel level sensor and temp sensor thingies). Pop top off the fuel assembly and pop fuel level sensor unit with screwdriver. Remove fuel pump harness connector, quick connectors. Pop top off completely, pop fuel filter+pump assembly out, remove fuel pump bracket on the bottom of it. Push fuel pump down from the top harness connector, Take out the rubber grommet (very important - car won't start) between fuel filter and fuel pump, put it into new fuel filter, and reverse all the steps to close it up.
